FUTURE OF LOCAL AND REGIONAL RAIL SERVICES
EDM #1323
Tabled 04 June 2003
2002-03 Session
That this House expresses its deep concern about the future of local and regional rail services and the potential for line closures and service withdrawals; condemns the Strategic Rail Authority's downgrading of local and regional services demonstrated by the cuts in services announced earlier this year; notes with concern the potential for further cuts to local and regional services threatened by the Strategic Rail Authority's Capacity Utilisation Policies, the Office of Rail Regulator's interim review and the potential reductions in subsidy for services under the re-franchising process; further condemns the Strategic Rail Authority's recent suspension of funding for passenger schemes including stations, new services and line improvements, such as the Rail Passenger Partnership Fund; acknowledges the success of many of the schemes arising from these funds in creating new services and attracting new customers; further acknowledges the major role that local and regional services play in tackling social exclusion and promoting sustainable development; and calls upon the Government as a matter of urgency to reinstate the funding necessary while ensuring better value-for-money and to provide the direction to the Strategic Rail Authority to ensure that local and regional rail services play their full part in providing the nation with the integrated public transport network it needs.
